NEW YORK STATE PAROLE DIVISION: In 1817, the nation's first NEW YORK STATE PAROLE DIVISION: In 1817, the nation's first "good time" law, rewarding prison inmates with time off their period of imprisonment for good behavior, was approved in New York State. In 1876, New York State passed a system of "indeterminate" sentences setting a minimum and maximum term and permitting parole release of those who had served the minimum; those selected by prison officials for parole were required to report monthly to citizen volunteers known as "Guardians. “ On July 1, 1930, the Division of Parole was established in the Executive Department. A full-time Board of Parole was created within the Division and given the responsibility, formerly held by the Department of Corrections, for decisions on parole releases from prisons. Jurisdiction over releases from training schools and correctional institutions for mentally disabled prisoners was added to the Parole Board's authority in 1945.

NEW YORK STATE PAROLE DIVISION CONTINUED: A 1967 law extended the Board's release authority NEW YORK STATE PAROLE DIVISION CONTINUED: A 1967 law extended the Board's release authority to persons incarcerated in local reformatories and gave the agency control over the conditional release of inmates under definite sentences. A 1978 law made the Division of Parole responsible for the release decision for juveniles convicted of certain serious felonies and for their post-release community supervision. With the surge in incarcerations in the 1980 s and 1990 s, the Division of Parole expanded significantly, as did the array of substance abuse treatment and other services available to help releases maintain a law-abiding life style. The Sentencing Reform Act of 1998, commonly referred to as Jenna's Law, added a new dimension to the Division through the elimination of discretionary release for all violent felony offenders while mandating court-imposed periods of post-release supervision of 1. 5 to 5 years that the offender must serve after completing the period of incarceration imposed by the court.

BOARD OF PAROLE Mission To promote public safety by preparing inmates for release and BOARD OF PAROLE Mission To promote public safety by preparing inmates for release and supervising parolees to the successful completion of their sentence. The primary functions and powers of the Board are: Making Release Determinations: The Board determines which inmates serving indeterminate sentences in state prison may be released on Parole. The Executive Law (Section 259 -i (2) (a)) requires the Board to personally interview inmates eligible for release. Inmates do not have the right to counsel at release interviews. The typical panel consists of two or three board members who are responsible for: - Interviewing the inmate; - Reviewing summary reports prepared by facility parole officers; and - Determining whether the inmate will be released to parole supervision.

BOARD OF PAROLE Making Release Determinations: The Board sets conditions of release for inmates BOARD OF PAROLE Making Release Determinations: The Board sets conditions of release for inmates released on parole. In addition, it sets release conditions for inmates "conditionally released" to supervision by statute. These inmates earned time off their maximum sentence for good behavior. Sentencing reforms enacted in 1995 and 1998 change sentences for violent felony offenders. Violent offenders now receive determinant prison sentences and are released to parole supervision. without appearing before the Board for release consideration. However, the Board still imposes conditions of release for these offenders.

BOARD OF PAROLE CONTINUED Revoking Parole: Under Executive Law (Section 259 -i (3) (f) BOARD OF PAROLE CONTINUED Revoking Parole: Under Executive Law (Section 259 -i (3) (f) (x)), the Board has the authority to revoke parole when it determines a releasee has violated the conditions of release "in an important respect. " Board action may return the individual to State prison or impose other appropriate sanctions. In some cases, Board action has been delegated to Administrative Hearing Officers. Under the authority of the Board, the Division adjudicates due process violations. All decisions of Board panels and Administrative Hearing Officers may be appealed. These appeals are made directly to the Parole Board. Also, the Board, at the Governor's request, interviews clemency applicants and makes recommendations to the Governor. The Board delegates its statutory authority to investigate requests to the Division's Executive Clemency Unit.

VICTIM IMPACT UNIT The Division of Parole makes a special effort to ensure that VICTIM IMPACT UNIT The Division of Parole makes a special effort to ensure that victims of crimes do not become forgotten parties in the criminal justice process. Parole has worked with the New York State Crime Victims Board and local district attorneys to help ensure that victims are aware of their rights with regard to the parole process. Landmark legislation in 1994 allowed for victims to meet face to face with a member of the Board of Parole, or to submit a written victim impact statement to the Board. Procedures have been established allowing the Division to maintain contact with crime victims and, at their request, keep them apprised of parole interview dates and decisions, and the release dates of the offenders who victimized them.

VICTIM IMPACT UNIT CONTINUED The following statutory and policy changes have enhanced victim access VICTIM IMPACT UNIT CONTINUED The following statutory and policy changes have enhanced victim access to the parole process: § Victims can have additional face to face meetings with a Parole Board member prior to an inmate's subsequent reappearances. A verbatim transcript is now generated from these interviews and made available to the reviewing Board panel; § Victims may submit video or audio taped victim impact statements if preferred.

Overview of the Strategy New York State’s Youth Violence Reduction Strategy (YVRS) is designed to promote and support a coordinated attack on youth violence in selected high-crime areas. The strategy has components at two levels: locally developed coordinated action plans and state-level support and technical assistance to facilitate local efforts.

Recommended indicators of local youth violence and risk factors, which are suggested as part of the YVRS strategy and should be monitored by localities wherever possible. 3. Program-specific indicators to monitor the immediate outcomes of the specific interventions that comprise the youth crime reduction strategy in a particular locality. These are specified by each participating locality.
